Anyone else download the demo yet? It's out on two other game sites. I wish BF would get it, but don't think they will.

I was hoping this game would be, well not quite Amazon, but really good. Gamezebo wasn't really thrilled with it however.

So, of course, I'll check out the demo but I don't really have high hopes.

Dang it! Where's Azada: 2!

It's a Natalie Brooks - Laura Jones/Gates Of Good & Evil - Women's Murder Club sort of game. That's the best way I can discribe it.

Sad to say, but BF won't be getting it. This game is A ********** EXCLUSIVE! Guess we will have to pay $19.99 for it or wait until it goes on sale somewhere - which will probably be Labor Day on 9/1. This really bites.

Yeah, well Gamezebo has given some good reviews to games I think stink, so it's all a matter of what a person likes. All in all, I thought it was a good game, but I did only play for an hour.


I also read the reviews, but it really is a matter of what an individual likes and is looking for. I've noticed sometimes there is a bad rating because of the replay factor, but for myself, that isn't the deciding factor. However, the reviews point out the pros and cons, so you can make a decision based on your likes and needs.

I just finished playing the crystal portal and I wasn't too impressed. It was rather easy in a way and I've played much harder seek and finds.

I liked the seek and find portion of the game. Good graphics. cleverly hidden objects. I didn't have a problem with scrolling to find the containers. The little pictures that popped up to identify the items to find were pretty clear, not just silhouettes. Even in plain sight, a couple were pretty hard to find. I liked that all the containers were not available immediately. I found the dialogue boxes and pop-up characters annoying. But, livable. The sequencing was off kilter. The guy popped up to say I could enter the secret room since I'd found all the bells when I'd only found 4 of the 6. Overall, I'd say it's an OK game. I'll buy this one if BFG gets it.

Cesse--I had the same problem with entering the secret room--I only had 5 of 6. Must be a little leftover glitch. Overall though, I did like the game. It is different enough to be worth buying (which I did).

TimeKilla--sometimes not everything does appeal to everyone. I know awhile back, there was a game I thought was good, but the reviews were lousy and no one seemed to like it. I ended up getting it anyway, and though I can't recall the game right now, I remember I played it through and enjoyed it. To each his own........

Was not very impressed with this game. I played it twice because I thought perhaps I missed a level since it ended so quickly. The hidden objects were not that hard, the story line was cute, but not addictive. I suppose there is a sequel in the works since at the end of this game she still had not found her father.

I played the demo and got stuck at the Japan Temple. The last thing to find so you can get to the secret room and the last weight is a red mask. A walkthrough says

JAPAN TEMPLE LAST
Click on the left side where you see the lantern leaning against the tree and a pop-up window will appear.
Grab the red mask that is inside and place it on the green artifact that is on the lower left side.

I could not find the red mask in the demo and I can't find it in the game now that I have finally bought it.

Help!

I will send you a message with a link to a picture of the bird's nest in that scene. In the picture I have put a red outline around the bird's nest.

Good luck on the game!

I liked this game,especially when I found out if you have the patience, you can finish it by playing it on the arcade town game site.For me this only took a few hours to

complete and really was a good way to spend an afternoon. I thought the graphics were really good, however I could of done without the pop ups but thankfully there

gone in a few seconds so not so bad.I have to say thou I'm not a fan of cliffhanger endings it always leaves me feeling some what unsatisfied. I keep trying to click

all over the picture when Nicole is standing in front of the crystal portal. I had an idea that it would be a fast ending after I had completed the last puzzle but I thought

we would at least get to see where her father is before the game ended I also was expecting to see a message saying something about the sequel so you at least have

some kind of closure I had to go on a forum because I thought I missed something, but it looks like that is that until ...To Be Continued?...We Shall See.
